CIGNA dispute with Connecticut network could disrupt healthcare
Hartford Courant, December 4, 2008
A showdown between CIGNA and Connecticut hospitals in Manchester and Rockville could end their relationship in a few weeks, sending thousands of patients scrambling for new doctors and forcing them to use other hospitals. CIGNA and the Eastern Connecticut Health Network, which includes the two hospitals, have failed so far to reach a new contract. The old one expires Dec. 31, and both sides expect to continue negotiations. The hospitals are fighting for higher reimbursement.
